Early Monday morning, UCLA fired Steve Alford midway through his sixth season. That called for an emergency podcast from Parrish and Norlander. The guys start on the news, then discuss the problems with the expectations of what the UCLA job is (and isn't). From there, there go deep into the candidate pool (20:40) and lay out a lot of names. Then, it's time to preview some good games this week. In order: Marquettte-St. John's (38:02), Nebraska-Maryland (40:40), Texas Tech-West Virginia (43:35), Oklahoma-Kansas (45:20) and Minnesota-Wisconsin (47:35).
Happy New Year, everyone, and thanks for subscribing. If you haven't already, please rate the podcast well and leave a nice review!
